Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2010, Vol. 82 Issue 9, p12
The article discusses the manufacturer's view on how to succeed in making green projects, specifically citing the vendors involvement in its design. It mentions that they price equipment after they received design parameters and associated cooling and heating loads in the conventional heating, ventilation and airconditioning (HVAC) sales-cycle process. It cites the expected evolution of the projects as the design team reviews techniques on the reduction of the building's environmental impact.
